Susan Du’s Take on Johannesburg

Welcome to The Daily’s new photo blog: Captured. This will be a space to share photos by The Daily’s staff as well as photos from members of our community. We’re launching with a few feature photos from current and past photo editors and will update the blog a few times a week.

Note from the Photographer:

Last spring I went to Johannesburg to complete my journalism residency at The Star newspaper. The Star newsroom was located in the central business district, and after filing my stories for the day I would occasionally find a bit of time to wander the downtown and photograph people on the street. A short minibus away was Melville, a GLBT neighborhood where I stayed with other student journalists from Medill. This is a collection of shots I gathered on assignment and after work.

Susan Du is a Medill senior. She is a former photo editor for The Daily Northwestern.
